    I also saw Discovery and ISS. I think this is the closest together that I've
    observed 2 such bright sats.  I was following them with binoculars when a UFO
    came flying down between them. 
    My last Mir sighting was Mon., March 12, about 7 min after sunset with the sun
    2.2 deg. below the horizon.  This is the closest to daylight that I've seen a
    sat naked eye.
